                                        Application of Remote Sensing & GIS in Mapping Air Pollution Episodes and DistributionsPostAuthorIcon Author: cesrafutaCourse Title: Application of Remote Sensing & GIS in Mapping Air Pollution Episodes andDistributionsDates: 13.05.2013 – 15.05.2013 rescheduled for 24th – 26th July, 2013Venue: Centre for Space Research Laboratory, Federal University of Technology, AkureABOUT THE TRAININGThis training will offer a set of methods and modern techniques through the application of Remote Sensing and GIS in solving air pollution monitoring challenges. This will inform skills in tracking air pollution episodes and distribution with a view to providing relief in environmental impacts assessments and studies, and also facilitate viable tools that can aid policy formulation and decision making..The training includes a practical, hands-on GIS problem solving, by making use of Free Open Source and commercial GIS Software such as ArcGIS, ILWIS, ERDAS Imagine, Google Earth, Google Map Maker and several other modeling tools.The instructor led trainings are delivered using a blended learning approach and comprises of presentations, guided sessions of practical exercise, web based tutorials, group work and field works. Our facilitators are seasoned academic and industry experts with years of experience, working as professional and trainers in these fields.FOR WHOM IS THE TRAINING RELEVANTThe course is targeted at the categories of environmental managers, regulatory agencies, oils companies and services, scientists and graduate students etc who require knowledge and skills on the use of GIS and Remote Sensing in solving air pollution challenges in their organizations, research and projects relating to such.The training is tailored for these practitioners that will include officials of national, states and local governments, National Environment Standards Regulation and Enforcement Agencies (NESREA), States Environmental protection agencies (SEPA). Ministries of Environment, departments and agencies with environmental sections, Niger Delta Development Commissions (NDDC), States Oil development commissions eg (OSOPADEC, DESOPADEC etc), disaster and emergency management authorities, staff of training institutes, institutions of public administration, national and international NGOs and the private sector.CLASS SIZEThe class size is limited to 40 participants to ensure that each participant has the opportunity to interact with the facilitator, GIS system and a GPS unit. Participants will therefore be selected on first come first serve basis. Hence early bird registration is highly encouraged.TRAINING CONTENTSAir pollution modellingMonitoring and measuringBasic understanding of Fundamentals of Remote sensing and GISRemotely sensed data for Air pollutionGIS Softwares requiredPre-Processing, Post- Processing techniques and image classificationSource identificationEconomic of air pollution controlAtmospheric pollution chemistryEIA of air pollution in oil and gas industrySatellite mapping of air pollutionTechniques of air pollution satellite remote sensingMeasuring of aerosol, black particles, visual inspection of satellite imageriesLand use and land change satellite analysisThermal infrared determination of hot pollutionLandsat TM dataSPOTAir pollution and healthFlood, erosion and desertification assessmentEarly warning systemPolicyMonitoring of environmental sensitive areas such as Areas liable to air pollution, forest fires etcWastes Management in cities.CERTIFICATIONUpon successful completion of this training, participants will be issued a FUTA CESRA certificate of proficiency in this subject.TRAINING FEES: N50, 000: 00HOW TO APPLYTo apply for this course, please kindly register online on our website www.cesrafuta.org.
